Small fire at Richland Parish aluminum plant

Posted: Updated:

DELHI, La. (KNOE 8 News) - A Richland Parish aluminum plant is back open after a small fire. This happened Saturday night at the Sapa Extrusions plant in Delhi. Ken Hall with Delhi Fire says the plant was evacuated and power was shut off quickly Saturday evening.

Hall says it all started when moisture got inside an aluminum container and that caused a small explosion. Some of the dust from that blast got onto wires in that area inside the plant. No one was injured as a result of the fire.

Hall says the plant may only need to replace some of the electrical wires that were damaged by the fire.
